include a provision in the debt ceiling legislation saying that lawmakers will not be paid if they do not pass a budget blueprint. was it right to step back from challenging the president over raising the debt ceiling? >> well, i think the house proposal is a step in the right direction. no doubt the senate hasn't done it's job. it's been nearly four years since it's passed a budget. but it doesn't go nearly far enough. we have a crisis. i just got back last week from afghanistan. and i had multiple servicemen and women clasp me on the arm and say, please do something about the debt and deficit. we're bankrupting the country. that's what the american people are looking for. and to date, politicians have both parties have been unwilling to take even a tiny step in the right direction. we've got to fix the problem. >> the senate has to pass a budget. do you believe that? >> i do. >> why has it been four years since you've done that? >> well, let me answer this. this was a major victory for the president. the republicans have now twice lost out on fiscal issues in the last month. first f

the debt ceiling, allow for, you know, lenders to get paid both, you know, people holding treasuries as well as people who are actually lending the government money expecting a refund. gerri: if this gambit from the republicans does not work, are some at risk after not getting the refund? >> anything's possible. look, at the end of the day, if the ceiling is not raised and restrict expenses somewhere, refunds could be down the road. irs says if you electronically file, expect a refund within ten days, similar to last year, but, you know, they could say that now not knowing what's going to happen just, you know, a few weeks from now. gerri: we have no idea. the reality is the irs does not control this. >> absolutely not. gerri: that they have to react,d it takes a long time to make changes that need to be made. now, i know you're against refunds, but there's people out there who try to get them every year, like to get them. what's your problem with the refund? >> you loan the government money, zero percent interest, and then you get it back, and it's funny how people think, they say,

yourself. >> the debt ceiling debate continues. >> we are not a dead beat nation. >> we all know the issue is spending. >> what are the risks of huge spending cuts? >> operations, maintenance, and trading will be gutted. real ground aircraft, return chips to port, and sharply curtail training across the force. >> a bill before the wyoming state legislature would make a federal agent who tried to enforce a ban on firearms guilty of a felony. there are similar measures under consideration in texas and the governor of mississippi says he wants to make it illegal in the state to enforce any new federal gun laws. how many times have we had this debate? this time after the murders of the children in newtown, conn., the president tells us this is different. the president has signed 23 executive orders aimed at reducing gun violence and is urging congress to reinstate a ban on so-called assault weapons, limit the size on magazines, and mandate here are some background checks for all gun sales. he is also asking the public to put heat on members of congress. >> remembers of congress if they support
to another potential issue. the republicans determination to shut down government, to let the debt ceiling hang out, to risk a loss of credit, are they still on that same front? >> i think they are seeing the handwriting on the wall. when you look at these bipartisan votes, you have paul ryan voting for higher taxes. you have both ryan and rubio voting for immigration reform now. and i think you're going to see enough votes in the center to raise the debt ceiling without any kind of -- chris: are they jumping shark on this? >> i think so. i think the public is certainly sick of it. and i also think the business community doesn't want to hear anything about shutting down the government. chris: you're the expert. i real me mean this. people advise me on making financial decisions. they think the economy looks pretty good. don't mess it up. >> it does look pretty good, as best we can tell. the one thing to remember is it's not just the debt ceiling. it's these automatic cuts that are scheduled to take place march 16789 the debt ceiling isn't their only opportunity to try to get the president
as the concern over the debt ceiling and the fiscal cliff winds down. cheryl: i'm sure there's a lot of investment banks right now in new york that are celebrating what you just said. we shall see. john, we will have more of your pick merck on thursday. merck's chairman and ceo will be sitting down with liz claman in davos switzerland, that interview is coming up later on this week. technology stocks took off last year. they've started off 2013 pretty strong, except for one name, apple. shares of apple this year have already fallen 6% in the first 13 trading days of the year. will the earnings report on wednesday be a turn around or will it send the stock going lower? plus will the rest of the sector follow its lead? we will have more on that coming up next. cheryl: business continues. investors gearing up for a big earnings week this week. tech giants apple and google both set to report. but let's take a look at some other major tech stocks that are in the green so far for the year. starting with some of the computer makers, fox business reported last week that dell may be looking t
onto the debt ceiling deadline. there is so much acrimony. if he wants to get back to using the government to try to stablize the economy, that is political will that just doesn't exist right now. shepard: evan, presidential historian, is there a time which you can point where the nation was so divided and solutions seemed so elusive, that, this sort of rhetoric, might have been able to bring back together, especially as the republicans examine a mirror that shows their party, so enunevenly divided? >> i don't think the rhetoric will pull the country back together. it is political realities and self-interest of the parties involved. you see in the steps of the republican party over the last month or so a bit of the realization the playing field has changed. they see who won the presidential election, they see what happened in the senate and house election to a certain extent, been a little bit of pulling in of horns. whether that is fight to fight down the road or not. a little bit of different atmosphere, before november. so i think, you can go back and certainly see times
on raising the debt ceiling on wednesday. so, this means that one of the big hang-ups that everybody was worried about, the republicans have said they would not make a fight over this right now. they've agreed to raise the debt ceiling, as far as we know. this would be for three months, and then they would take it from there. but this gives everybody some breathing room and has to be taken as good news today. >> and now we see live the vice president's sons and the vice president's daughter taking their seat as the families of the president and the vice president are announced here on the west front of the u.s. capitol. we'll be expecting to see the first family again here shortly. and, of course, the crowds up and down the national mall, here to witness american history for themselves. they have a much easier day of it today than they did in 2009. in 2009 when the president took the oath, it was 28 degrees, but now it's about 39 degrees in washington and it is cloudy but a very beautiful day here, a perfect day for the inauguration of the president. >> looking at those pictures, sco
was talking again about a balanced approach saying whatever deal on the debt ceiling has to have tax loopholes closed. speaker boehner brought the 800 billion in loop whole closures in the beginning of the fiscal cliff negotiation that should be a part of this deal. despite the fact that the president wanted rate increase on the fiscal deal and that's all they want. >> you can see the democrats and white house believe they have the argument in their back pocket. they offered once they can call on it again if they are going to concede on any spending cuts. none have been discussed at least in the short term are going to solve the problem. the only way you solve the problem is by structural entitlement reform. you have to change the trajectory. it is not 50 billion from defense spending there. it would have an impact in our capability in context with the military but the only way you get serious and change the trajectory of the debt is to have entitlement reform. >> what does that take? we are europe and finally we have to do something about it? >> i think charles's point this is a president who

, either right now, at the end of february or if we kick it forward to the end of april, the debt ceiling itself, they all become moments to talk about spending sequestration, is -- we need to stop spending, we need to reduce spending, but, it would be better if we could figure out how to do that in a targeted away or and across-the-board way and the worst way to have spending cuts, we can't decide how to cut anything and we'll cut everything a little bit and that is not the right thing to do and hopefully, we can find a better solution to sequestration, in the arm services committee and other places. >> chris: let's talk about another item on the agenda. you have an a-rating from the national rifle association and this week you accused the president of trying to -- wanting to try to take away our constitutional right when it comes to the right to bear arms and mr. obama says that he is protecting other rights. take a look: >> president barack obama: that most fundamental set of rights to life and liberty and the pursuit of happiness, fundamental rights that were denied to college student
retreated last week. whether to extend the debt ceiling. well, maybe we will extended for three months without spending cuts. i think they're feeling their oats right now plan that was reflected by that statement by chuck schumer. lori: without question. thank you so much. love your insight. >> thank you, melissa. melissa: breaking news. the death toll from the algerian gas plant seeds climbing past 80 people as more bodies are being found. u.s. officials say that the american casualties now stand at three people. straight to fox news with more. >> well, that toll is likely to continue to increase in the coming days and maybe even weeks. aagerian officials continue to sift through the entire debris at the tax side. dozens of people are still unaccounted for. officials say they're finding dozens of mangled bodies all over the facility. it is really difficult to tell whether or not they are the bodies of hostages or the attackers. making matters worse according to algerian officials, fears a booby traps and mines all over the gas facility. melt the group is planning responsibility for th
the national debt ceiling. republican leaders announced today the extension lets the government continue borrowing money until may 19. the current debt ceiling-- $16.4 trillion-- could be reached as early as mid-february. the house bill does not specify a new dollar amount. it does mandate that congress approve budgets, or lawmakers won't be paid. major league baseball lost two hall of famers over the weekend. st. louis cardinals great stan musial-- "stan the man"-- died saturday at his home just outside the city. he played 22 years, helping the cards win three world series titles in the 1940's. he was widely regarded as one of game's greatest hitters ever. stan musial was 92 years old. also saturday, former baltimore orioles manager earl weaver passed away, during a caribbean cruise. weaver won the world series in 1970, and took his teams to three others. along the way, he gained fame for his fiery, in-your-face confrontations with umpires. he was ejected from games 91 times over 17 seasons. earl weaver was 82 years old. >> brown: finally tonight, a closing reflection on the inauguratio
seems to have been a force forex tending debt ceiling in order to gain some time to negotiate. i think all of that argues in favor of some time to get the right things done. >> chuck gabriel, how did you read or hear the president's passage where he talked about medicare and social security and he said the commitments we make to each other through medicare, medicaid, social security, these things do not zap our initiative, they strengthen it. they do not make us a nation of takers, they free us and make this country great. that felt to me like a bit of a stake in the ground by the president. >> yeah. you know, the president last week cast doubt on whether republicans believe in the principles and functions of social security and medicare, etc. so in some respects i think this is kind of a new, improved version of what president clinton did when he was facing a republican congress. he was talking about family values back in the '90s. he said i want a government that values families. and as the president said, we don't need to relitigate this today, but we need a government that will tak
the congress you are going to see on debt ceiling. the republicans in the house are talking about a short-term view of that. it certainly would avoid disaster coming up for the end of march. you will still have the issue of raising it for the long term. on the republican side there is no real appetite to do that without the reforms. same for gun-control. a lot of the agenda items that the president announced last week, the 23 executive actions you will see taken piece by piece. the easiest one to accomplish will be those that come forward the fastest, and the same for immigration reform. there is a lot that could be done and a comprehensive approach, but i think you will see that come down to the very bare minimum that both sides are able to agree on. >> let me follow up with a vote that will happen on wednesday. that will give another three months and the extension of the debt limit. weird is that position? why delay that for three months? where does that put them in march and april? >> this is an acknowledgement that they have lost the debt ceiling essentially as a leveraged tool they h
the debt ceiling. but, you know, even if they get over those two short-term problems, you still have got the problem of a massive deficit, which is going to have to be reigned in. at some point, you're going to get a fiscal squeeze in america and that is going to put a break on what is not very far from economic growth. i think you'll have that which is always something that is going to be there in the background. you have a lot of debt, as well, still in the private sector, which needs to be fluffed off. there's a deraef raejing that you've been seeing right across the western world is still going to go on, i think, for the best part of this decade. >> and we heard leading up to this election that rarely has a u.s. president been elected with such high levels of unemployment. what was different this time? >> oh, i think it had something to do with the candidate he was facing not being able to energize the public. but i also think, look, reflation? the public loves that, right? free money. >> but do they love what's happening with gas prices? we showed what was happening on the flip side
delayed. the debt ceiling approaching as you know about the same time. even if they were to push that back another month, two, three, the fact of matter --. martha: jump in neil. we see the president now. thank you very much. neil cavuto. bill: from st. john's episcopal church, they call this church the church of the presidents. every sitting member of white house attended church here going back to james madison. half a dozen or so presidents always made it their first stop on inauguration day. president obama continues that tradition with his family just emerging. martha: lovely family. the girls, we watched them grow up last four years, saush sha -- sasha and malia. how do you feel, is being shouted from the crowd. incredible moment for barack obama as he gets ready to begin his second term. four presidents have done this particular tradition of going to st. john's right before their inauguration. harry truman, ronald reagan and both president bush's went to st. john's on the actual morning of the inauguration. we watch president barack obama carry on that tradition. bill: remarkable whe
